I wanted to get this song up before the end of February (I’m a procrastinator). I sat down on Valentine’s day thinking it would be cool to write a jokey bitter love song, but I ended up writing a for real bitter love song. Because no song is for real bitter like a song is bitter on a ukulele. So, um, enjoy? (Just kidding, you will, I promise)
This is a song I was feeling last night. It was really warm yesterday and I spent a good amount of it driving with the windows down. To top that off, usually only the left front speaker of my car works, but like a gift my right one popped in for the entire day. That = louder music (plus, a popular recording technique is called hard panning, and that means a guitar/vocal/other track is put entirely in one speaker and taken completely or mostly out of the other. Which can make a song sound richer when you have both speakers, but can ruin a song if you’re missing one). I had a really good day and I was wearing a skirt which made it feel like the precipice of spring. I was feeling mellow and hopeful, and this was a rewarding little ditty to write. It’s been a long February. It’s been a cold front.
